01 X-Star Oil Change Advice

Alright team I just bought a 01 x-star a few days ago and am doing an oil change because the guy had not done one this year. Which oil should I use the only 15W-40 I can find is for Diesel engines. The one I have found is Shell Rotella T Triple Protection is this what I should use???

great stuff - good price - ok for your year engine.. other options available but that is the best bang for buck.

This is hardly a way to fire up an oil thread... it's like you didn't even try...

The diesel oil is made for marine use as well, some of manufactures have both diesel and marine on the jug....
